Romanus' Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Romanus' Group's story

Romanus's Group is formed by 9 farmers in Alego District and is being represented by Romanus, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 59 years old and has 6 children. Romanus has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual. Romanus isn’t new to One Acre Fund, he actually joined the program in 2016 and has since noticed his life has changed; especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year, Romanus will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Using this loan, Romanus's Group will purchase a total of 5 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 5 acres.
